LIAM NEESON TEMPTS RETIREMENT WITH CONFESSION HE WANTED TO COMMIT RANDOM RACIST REVENGE MURDER
Liam Neeson cuts quite the figure. His career has been amazing. It’s been years since I first saw him in Darkman. And yes that is an intentional memory reference. But today Neeson is out and about promoting his latest project, Cold Pursuit. But at a recent interview about his, new movie, Neeson decided it was a good time to reveal something truly shocking. Years ago he learned that a close friend had been raped by a black man. So how did he react? He roamed the streets for days hoping to get the chance to kill a “black bastard” in blind racist revenge. He wanted to commit racist murder!
NEESON’S CURRENT MOVIE CHARACTER IS A FATHER SEEKING DEADLY REVENGE FOR SON’S MURDER
I know. Shocking, right? So what was the bridge to this incredibly unfortunate personal reveal? His current character is a father who is looking for revenge after his son ‘s murder. But of course the culprits were a drug lord and his gang. But Neeson’s racial murderous rage happened quite some time ago now. He had just returned home from being overseas and learned about the rape. He said, “She handled the situation of the rape in the most extraordinary way. But my immediate reaction was… (and he paused here) I asked, did she know who it was? No. What colour were they? She said it was a black person.”
NEESON WENT LOOKING FOR ANY BLACK MAN TO KILL FOR 10 LONG DAYS OF RACIST RAGE
Neeson continued, “I went up and down areas with a cosh, hoping I’d be approached by somebody – I’m ashamed to say that – and I did it for maybe a week, hoping some [Neeson gestures air quotes with his fingers] ‘black bastard’ would come out of a pub and have a go at me about something, you know? So that I could (again Neeson paused)…. kill him.” So Neeson explains that he’s now completely disgusted by that impulse. But especially as it lasted for 10 days. Neeson’s current co-star Tom Bateman was sitting next to Neeson during his confession. But he reacted succinctly with, Holy Shit!”
So that happened. There seems to be a lot of dated racial identity outing in recent weeks. But I wish I didn’t know about Neeson.
